The first group of buildings from the former East Market Street Wayside campus are nearly done with renovation and will have tenants by October 1st. Scaffolding has been down for some time, and this week custom storefronts will be installed on the two buildings pictured above.
Originally planned for demolition for an expanded shelter for women and children, a group of investors led by Gill Holland of the nearby Green Building purchased the entire East Market Wayside campus for $5 million and plans a mixed-use concept that will further rejuvenate the expanding area. The brick facades have been completely restored and new windows have already been installed.
This fall, the buildings will be nearly full. Already, two retail tenants and an office tenant have joined up and negotiations are underway with a restaurant. After the storefronts are installed this week, the structures should visually help to complete the streetscape as tenant fit-ups get underway. The buildings are scheduled to open around October 1st.

Awesome news yet again for this neighborhood. any word on the tenants signed at this time?
The GRAFFITI that has been added on the red brick building is a really nice urban touch!
That should inspire more investment in this area.
Actually, the graffiti has already been mentioned in a previous post concerning these buildings.
Tenants names not available yet, ZMcC, but I’ll let you know as soon as I hear. There are definitely some exciting things happening in NuLu.
